Supply & Demand is a Modern Italian Trattorias & Pizza Restaurant located in Orchard Gateway. Their very first outlet was actually at Esplanade there! Which i did not know about it and always thought that Orchard Gateway was their first! I’m filled with anticipation in trying this place out after hearing raving reviews about their food especially the pizza.
I got to hear about the setting of supply & demand resembles that of a classroom setting. I kind of agree for the extended seating and the way they had their menu in the report book style. & also the big chalkboard filled with scribbles of their daily promotions is indeed eye-catching from afar. While the interior has leaves hanging over the lighting with sunlight streaming in through the windows, giving a laid-back casual atmosphere for a weekend afternoon.
Though it’s a italian restaurant, besides serving pizza and pasta, they serve brunch on weekends and they have a list of southeast delicacy such as Thai Inspired Curry, Vietnamese Stir Fry dishes, Fusion of italian pasta with Asian flavor and more. Very extensive menu filled with appetizer, salad, mains, drinks and desserts and prices ranging from $20-$30 odds for their mains.
Hazelnut Latte ($7): Somehow it tasted more chocolatey than it should be lacking the taste of caffeine.
Al Vino Bianco in White Wine with Seafood Full Plate ($23): Spaghetti with mixed seafood in garlic infused with white wine sauce. Spaghetti was cooked just right for the bite and the broth was flavorful. It’s a lil sour and sweet and the white wine was blended well into the broth. Seafood were fresh and not overcooked. The full plate is in fact not too much but just nice a meal for a person while the tasting plate is much smaller and it’s not really worth it to me.
Regular 9″ Parma Ham & Provinciale ($21): We are greedy but we have finite stomach space! So we decided to pay additional $3 to have 2 flavors for our pizza. Half of the side is topped with parma ham, rucola salad and parmesan cheese while the other half is filled with chicken chunks and a soft egg set in the center. Plentiful of fresh and chunky ingredients was topped on the crispy thin crust pizza and baked to perfection. Personally, I preferred the Provinciale to Parma Ham, as i tasted better Parma Ham before elsewhere like the one in Bella Pizza. Somehow the Parma Ham just lack the lustre. On the other hand, the soft egg in Provinciale does magic and enhances the flavor of pizza.
Overall, it’s a good place for group gathering but service may be a little slow, kind of hard to catch the attention of their waiters and waitress.
